Free cookies! And a drug bust.

This Monday (12/9) marks a first for me: I’m doing a reading and signing at the State University of New York-Geneseo. It’s not the first event for Year of the Demon. It’s certainly not my first speaking event on a university campus; in fact, it’s not even my first event on Geneseo’s campus. But up until now, every time I’ve spoken in an academic setting, it’s always been about my academic work. This will be the first time I’ll speak on a college campus about my fiction.

I must say this is an event worth attending. Milne Library’s cookie platters are to die for. I’ll talk a bit about my writing process, and about how
Year of the Demon is the book I never thought I’d write. Then I’ll do a reading (this is where the drug bust comes in) and some Q&A.

If you can make it, I’d love to see you on Monday afternoon, December 9th, from 3:30-5:30 on the main floor of Milne Library. You don’t have to be affiliated with Geneseo to attend. (In fact if you’re not a Genesean, you get the best parking spots. That’s how courteous we are toward our guests around here. Plus we have cookies.)

Edited to add: My heartfelt thanks to everyone who came out to the library yesterday! I think the event was a big success -- and Milne stepped up its game on the dessert platter. Mini-cheesecake-cupcakes!
